My 2003 Honda Accord has been riding great. Has 155,000 miles. Recently noticed that when I am idling, say at a stop light, car would be a little shaky. Like it wanted to stall. Then check engine light came on. Reading on light showed a weak cylinder. Is the car unrepairable? Do I even bother getting it fixed? What would be the repair details for a weak cylinder? I am wondering if I should get rid of car, if anyone would even buy it.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Mena, If it has been a long time since you remember doing a basic maintenance on your vehicle, I highly suggest that you do at least replace; spark plugs and wires, fuel filter, and follow manufacturer's recommendations.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at You need to have it diagnosed. Shop around, some places will scan the system for free and give you and estimate to repair.
